I'm feeling better- which is reason enough to give thanks- believe me! We're sitting around the house right now, watching the parade from NYC. We will be going to "River BIL's" house today for dinner, and knowing him there will be too much of everything. So I'll just leave you all with a few goodies:
A couple of reason to give thanks-
They've won back a old fan in me- sorry!
Oh YEAH- My "first" love, and all the memories I have of this last tour. I only hope that these guys take a break next year. Why? Cause my finances could use the break- if nothing else!
And a little chuckle this morning ( as I'm not sure I'll have the chance tomorrow- everyone is home, and I have to work :( )
A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a
bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the
bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity
John tried and tried to change the birds' attitude by consistently
saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he
could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.
Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot
yelled back. John shook the parrott and the parrot got angrier and
even ruder. John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the
bird and put him in the freezer, for a few minutes the parrot squawked
and kicked and screamed
Then suddenly there was a total quiet, not a peep was heard for over a
minute. Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John Quickly opened the
door to the freezer
The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said
"I beleive I may have offended you with my rude language and actions.
I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I
fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and
unforgiveable behavior" John was stunned at the change in the bird's
attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a
dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued,
"May I ask what the turkey did?"
Many thanks, for all your friendships. The laughs, the tears, and the shared memories that keep at least this one lady's spirit up even during the darkest of days.
May your day bring you good food, great big smiles, laughs and harmony. I will raise a glass to all of you today.
Peace, Love, and a nice big drumstick to all!
